R.U.R = Robot. A WORD penned by a Czech in czech that got adopted in English. Karel Capek, a great Czech and close friend of the President of the First Czech Republic Tomas Garigue Masaryk (interesting guy, took his US wife's last name as his middle name back in the 30s ala John Winston Ono whatever).

thanks bluedevil; what's interesting, my students made sure i was aware of the Capek connection to the word "robot", which of course i very much appreciated, not only as a lifelong student of English, but as a fan of science fiction; it goes without saying of course, the Czechs have contributed greatly in so many areas of arts and sciences and sports and thinking, and they are very proud of that fact, for good reason as you know
